Overall, I was disappointed in the Pilot.
I purchased a 2011 EX-L.
What disappointed me the most was the poor gas mileage for a relatively weak engine for the size of the vehicle.
I was barely getting 17MPG overall.
I bought the SUV for the size, it is big and can carry a lot of cargo.
The ride is good, but very stiff.
I had no major problems, but there was a constant allignment issue that I had to have fixed several times.
I would not recommend because I feel there are much better other similiar vehicles available for the same money.
The amount of cargo space.
The solid feel to the build quality.
Improve poor gas mileage.
Increase engine performance and increase horsepower.
Not fun to drive at all.
